The Force in the North

Reality of Life

Our image of the North-West Mounted Police is one of brave, red-serge suited heroes astride beautiful, powerful steeds riding out to capture criminals then heading home to a warm house and a gorgeous wife.

For the Force in the North, the reality was not quite the same as the romantic image. The reality of life for Northern Mounties included mundane chores, amazing opportunities, harsh climates, creative thinking and unique challenges. Explore these realms and catch a glimpse of the daily life of members of the Force in the North.
